I agree, ruling out pollen induced variance, it looks quite similar to the Leo#1 that Jon Verdick is growing at his Encanto farm.

kh0110: There was a greenhouse in Japan that was completely void of insects where they tested the likelihood of annona producing fruit in the absence of a pollinator, I believe El Bumpo was the variety of choice, and they found that the more humid the environment, the more fruit were produced (without pollinator present).

I figured this post would be a decent place to report in.

I have a few annonas from JF's collection planted in-ground and while they might not have ample space, most seem to be doing well enough.

First to fruit Birula and Calastro (I might have picked these too early, but a few were missing from the tree when i went out today)
No hand pollination this year, never got around to it.


Still waiting on RH3, Arka Sahan, La Habra Sun, Hunucma Amarillo, Cuban Red
I have Giant Atis and Hawian Pink but they are tucked in between trees and or struggle for light.

How did they taste?  I'm assuming the redish one is the Birula?
